When archiving to a Centera device, and Collections is enabled, the StorageFileWatch process can crash during the partition scan to check if items have been backed up.
As the StorageFileWatch process is responsible for both ingestion of items from the Collection Folder to the Centera and verifying whether items has been replicated, the crash can cause a backlog in both areas to occur.

When the Partition Scan starts to check if item has been replicated, if an item is encountered which has not yet been ingested, EV will then check whether the file still exist in the Collection Staging Area which fails as the Path to the staging area is not initialized.
